November 2019

Dear Parent(s),

Our Mother Goose Time curriculum has the children learning about Community Helpers. Many will be familiar such as a police officer, firefighter, mail carrier along with a doctor, dentist, factory worker and a shopkeeper. There will be 20 community helpers to learn about. 

Daylight Savings Time ends on Sunday, November 3rd. We will “fall back” one hour that day.

On Tuesday, November 26th, we will be having our annual holiday lunch for all those children attending school during lunch hours that day. This year’s lunch will have a theme of A Kid’s Friendly Thanksgiving. More details will follow.

For school closing information, we will be using NBC10 School Closing Alert System and Channel 6’s Action News School Closing Alert System. These systems will display the school’s name and provide school closing, early closing, late opening, etc. for our school. We will continue to have a message on our answering machine for those parents comfortable with this method. You can also check our website at www.jeffersonvillecds.com for school closing information. Look under Upcoming Events & News on our homepage. 

As the weather becomes cooler, please have your child(ren) dressed appropriately for outdoor play. The children will be outside on a daily basis, even if it is only for 15-20 minutes (weather permitting, of course). Also, please be sure that your child(ren) has a seasonal change of extra clothing, labeled with their name, at the school. Thank you for your cooperation.
